Falling Flowers class - Stampin' Up!

Hiya! I'm back...

I've had a bit of a holiday - mainly because I have been doing so much crafting, working and I've had a holiday!

Here was the view from the caravan when I did a bit of sneaky crafting... at the bottom of a Welsh mountain.

Not bad eh? I took 2 of the amazing kits from the new catalogue!

August classes are focusing on the Falling Flowers set and we'll be doing some sponging and some heat embossing. I'm going to show the Emboss Resist technique and how awesome clear embossing ins on coloured card stock.

I'm loving the new In-Colours! The sentiment is a stand alone stamp called Stylized Birthday.

Look at the effect of the emboss resist technique - gorjuss!!!!!

You can see how lovely the clear embossing powder looks on coloured card.

Lastly we're just going to go wild with some random stamping on this fab panelled card.

Well - I'm back to the day job on Monday - can't believe 2 weeks have passed already! The new job, as expected with a promotion, is taking up lots of time! But I'm still selling products via my on-line shop and running classes... I would love you to come along!

Stampin' Up! - Floral Fun!

Good afternoon!

I don't 'do' sport really but well done to Andy Murray for winning the men's singles at Wimbledon, well done to Lewis Hamilton winning the British Grand Prix... and well done Paula for walking the dogs and getting all the washing and hoovering done, finally editing the photo's so she can blog and helping one of her downline with her job application - a very productive day in the UK!

Now to the interesting stuff! One of my favourites in the catalogue is the Floral Boutique Suite... have you seen it? All that blue and white is stunning!Well I had to have it all! I've not used everything yet but the Floral Phrases stamp set and Detailed Floral Thinlit Dies come in a bundle - saving a fabulous 10%.

Isn't the die stunning! Look at that! ^

Here I teamed up the stamp - coloured with Stampin' Write Markers and the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper. ^

I was immediately drawn to the blue and white - but am looking forward to trying other combinations.

Here I cut the Night of Navy card stock with the dies.

Well that's it from me for tonight... not least because I have a class to prep for and a cat walking backwards and forwards over the keyboard and in front of the screen driving me nuts!

Have a great week - I'll try and post a bit more - I still have all the home decor bits I displayed at the festival to show you!

Laters! xxxx

I've been so busy - I'm afraid I've been focusing on the off line side of the business. In particular preparing for a big event on Saturday! I am having a stand at our town annual festival... so if you're in Princes Risborough - come along the high street and say 'Hi'!
